10:47pm
at that video this church was packed with hundreds and hundreds of people and there were hundreds of people outside who simply could not get inside because they just all wanted to be here to be together to lean on each other through this very, very difficult time. just like this church here the st. rose of lima church there are a number of other churches in town. where the same things have been going on. i tell you what, this all started just about 16 hours ago, taking a look at the video that we had from earlier today. it started at 9:40 this morning. when apparently that young man 20-year-old adam lanza apparently walked in to the sandy hook elementary school and gunned down 26 people. 26 people. it's just amazing to say that and 20 of them were children. 18 of them dead on scene. two other children died at the hospital after that. and six adults including the principal, a long time dedicated educator here in connecticut.
10:48pm
and the school psychologist. you know someone online said today how ironic that it was the psychologist who was taken when this is a time when the kids need so much help going through this terrible terrible time. the police swarmed here. the local police newtown the state police, fbi is here. they're all investigating. this is going to be going on for a very long time. this investigation. even though that individual mr. lanza is now deceased, apparently by his own hand. he killed everybody here. the 26 people and then himself. and now apparently he also it's known that he also killed his mother at the house where she lived apparently and he lived also. and she of course was a teacher at that school as well. so this has been just an absolutely devastating, devastating time. certainly for this town, this very idealic quiet town where everybody says nothing ever happens of any real magnitude.
